Soldiers, War, Knowledge, and Citizenship: German-American Essays on Civil-Military Relations
Author: Donald Abenheim and Carolyn Halladay
Profs. Donald Abenheim and Carolyn Halladay have published essays on German-American civil-military relations, an anthology at the center of which is the "citizen in uniform" and concern for this institution. The individual contributions analyze from different perspectives (especially focusing on the problem of tradition), which are challenged by this culture and a corresponding soldierly self-understanding on both sides of the Atlantic. They show how both are harmed under the conditions of the "new wars" of the last decades, with their considerable internal political repercussions—to the detriment of democracy as a whole.

Anatomy of Post-Communist European Defense Institutions
Author: Thomas-Durell Young
Dr. Thomas-Durell Young delves into the state of defense institutions in Central and Eastern Europe, whose resources have declined at a faster rate than their Western neighbors due to social and fiscal circumstances at home and shifting international attitudes.

Author: Robert E. Looney

The Peacebuilding Puzzle: Political Order in Post-Conflict States

Jihad as Grand Strategy: Islamist Militancy, National Security, and the Pakistani State
Author: S. Paul Kapur
The militant organizations that Pakistan nurtured over the decades are increasingly exceeding its control; continued support for jihad diverts scarce resources from pressing domestic projects, impeding the country's internal development; and the militant campaign's repeated provocations have led India to adopt a more aggressive conventional military posture. Jihad as Grand Strategy shows these developments significantly undermine Pakistani interests, threatening to leave it less politically cohesive and externally secure than it was before. Thus, the strategy has outlived its utility, and Pakistan will have to abandon it in order to avoid catastrophe.
